Coping with IoT data overload? Try 3D visualization

Could you captain a supertanker—a ship longer than five football fields and 16 stories tall?

In addition to navigation, you would have to stay abreast of  thousands of sensor readings from across the ship that monitor spills, explosions and fires. You may need some help to cope with the data overload.

It’s difficult to process the enormous volume of data generated by IoT systems. Monitoring multiple real-time data feeds adds to the complexity. Automated data filtering helps. How can human intelligence be applied to very large, complex datasets?

Traditional management consoles aren’t well suited for managing real-time, complex systems. Decision making is easier with visualization—especially with thousands of sensors in large structures such as supertankers. The solution requires three components:

Engineered structures are designed by CAD systems such as AutoCAD. These designs first have to be converted into 3D models that can be overlaid with sensor data and viewed smoothly within a web browser. Autodesk Forge allows data from different design file formats to be extracted and displayed on a web browser using a zero-client, customizable, WebGL-based viewer.

Dotty Digital builds 3D visualizations of IoT systems with Autodesk Forge and live data from systems such as Autodesk Fusion Connect. It also incorporates information from other applications such as Excel, Oracle and SAP. Sensor data is visualized directly on the 3D model with an Autodesk viewer.

A captain can inspect conditions all over the ship from a web browser, as well as a mobile device. This enables the captain to view situations from anywhere on the ship. Different types of alarms and readings can be prioritized and activated.
